Poolwerx Named to Entrepreneur’s Top Global Franchise Brands
Leading Pool Service Franchise Builds Momentum in United States; Draws in Major Independent Retailers
July 24, 2018 // Franchising.com // Farmers Branch, TEXAS - Poolwerx, a leading pool service franchise with over 25 years of experience in the pool and spa industry, has been named No. 35 on Entrepreneur magazine’s 2018 Top Global Franchises ranking. The list recognizes the top 200 franchises growing both within and outside of the United States.
“Poolwerx could not be more excited to be recognized as one of the leading international concepts in the franchise space,” said John O’Brien, CEO and founder of Poolwerx. “Franchising is simply small business done well, and Poolwerx has been able to perfect this business model over the past 25 years. This has sparked positive growth and development for our company and allowed us to see success for the Poolwerx family both in the United States as well as Australia and New Zealand.”
In just three years in the United States, Poolwerx has already been named No. 183 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® list and No. 39 in the Top Franchises under $100K.
“In the United States, the pool service industry is still largely unorganized and independent. This has helped Poolwerx achieve several awards and rapid growth, as we’re seeing independent operators turn to our best-in-class business model to structure their businesses and be a part of a thriving, continuously growing industry,” said O’Brien. “Since coming to the United States, we have had several independent veteran pool service operators turn to Poolwerx and see their businesses become even more successful and competitive, and we look forward to seeing even more of these success stories as the Poolwerx family continues to grow.”
The company, specializing in creating and maintaining healthy pools for residential and commercial customers, now has 66 locations across seven states, and has a strategic plan to grow by an additional 20 stores and 85 mobile units by the end of this year, with a goal of having 300 stores and 900 mobile units open in the United States by 2023. To reach these goals, Poolwerx is continuing to seek interested franchise partners in Texas, Southern California, Arizona, Florida, South Carolina, Florida and Georgia to join the Poolwerx family. There is no experience required for Poolwerx franchise partners, as new owners receive comprehensive, ongoing training and earn nationally recognized qualifications at the end of their initial training period.
Originally founded in Australia, Poolwerx entered the United States in 2015 and quickly became the nation’s leading pool and spa service franchise with locations across the Sunbelt region. Committed to creating healthy pools for residences and commercial locations, Poolwerx provides a multitude of services including chemical testing, equipment repair and regular pool servicing. The Poolwerx brand is growing across the country through franchising, and has opportunities available for retail space, mobile units or multi-territory agreements.
